Poem: "The Great and the Small"

This poem came out of the June 7, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Anthony Barrette.


"The Great and the Small"


Shared birthdays
are a family thing,
one special day in
the year times two.

In my family, it's
Grandpa Barrette
and Uncle John with
the same one on June 7.

Dad tells stories about
those celebrations,
so much in common
within the family and yet
so different across the ages,

the great and the small together.
